. it was beeping so loud right outside your room. our results are disturbing but sleep researcher dr. gary smith says he sees this all the time. >> it would astound you how loud the sounds can get and children continue to sleep through them. >> reporter: why do kids sleep through the alarms? >> they are simply not small adults. they are different biologically. children spend more time in deep sleep than adults do. that's why it is harder for them to awaken in the case of an emergency. >> reporter: that's why he says families need an escape plan. make sure each adult has a designated child to wake up in a real fire. meanwhile researchers are trying to find a sound that works better than the beeping. dr. smith is experimenting with a new alarm prototype. it allows parents to record their own voices as the alarm telling their kids to get up. he says it seems to be working. right now these alarms aren't on the market and it could be at least another year before they are. jeff rossen, nbc news, new york. >>> as we said, this deserves our attention. you can see more of this reporting sunday night on "

so loud right outside your room. >> reporter: our results are disturbing. but dr. gary smith says he sees this kind of thing all the time. >> it would astound you at how loud the sounds can get and the children continue to sleep through them. >> reporter: dr. smith is a researcher at ohio's nationwide children's hospital and has been studying smoke detectors and sleeping children for years. >> how do children sleep differently than adults? >> they sleep very differently than adults. first of all, they spend more time in sleep. also, while they're asleep, spend more time in the deepest parts of sleep. and those are the parts of sleep that it's hardest to awaken from. >> reporter: so what does wake them up? dr. smith invited "dateline" into his sleep lab as he tested different alarm sounds on kids 12 and under to see what would work. hooking them up to sleep monitors. as we and their parents watch their responses live. first the traditional alarm most of us have. >> three, two, one. go.

can have on cultural and political debates in america. gary bower, the evangelical leader in the united states, wrote something for "usa today" this week that caught my attention and i'll share it with our audience. as an evangelical, i was delighted that the last two popes were moral and theological giants, john paul ii and benedict roxvi introduced an er in which the cathric church offers confident rebuttal to the false promises of the secular world. how would you like to see pope francis influence american political debates? we have so many of them, whether it's abortion or gay marriage, how would you like to see that impact? >> i think he simply has to preach the gospel and then do it in a way that is accessible and the holy spirit makes the impact, we believe. conversion of heart and mind is not something any pope or preacher can do. that depends upon god's grace, but you have to prooech the gosp gospel, and he'll do that. in a sense, you can say there is no god and freud is his praufrt, so for the sake of sexual liberation, we're allowing a lot of things to be let go
